In brief: Very effective

This is the most common thing that I have used hypnosis for. That is natural as I am a cardiologist.
Remember, a suggestion under hypnosis is very powerful. If one can make a person think a lemon is an orange and tastes sweet, it makes sense that the very reasonable suggestion of "stop killing yourself, stop smoking" might also be accepted. Being a cardiologist helps make the suggestion forceful.
